Have tried the Sahara several times now and have never been disappointed. The lamb is very tasty. Also really love the coffee there. Even though its a little farther drive, I think its well worth it. Cant wait to try the new falafel!
SO very yummy... three simple words pretty much sums it up for me. Ive eaten at all the middle eastern restaurant in the springs and manitou. Not only does sahara cafes food taste the best but their customer service exceeds any place in town.
We can't stop eating here! I've lived in the Middle East and in the NYC area, and Sahara's has some of the best Middle Eastern food anywhere. Amazing meats. Great falafel sandwiches. Our kids adore the lamb. Fattoush is fresh and delicious -- I'm so glad to finally find this salad here in Colo Springs. Not only is the food fresh the staff is GREAT. Both the food and the staff really set this apart from other area Middle Eastern restaurants. You'll feel taken care of whether you come in alone, with friends, or kids.
My wife and I have been since day one, We have been treated better than royalty.The staff are a gift from God!!!! The drinks and food are a passport to excellence!!!!! If you have not been here you must come and enjoy the SERVICE and FOOD !!!!
I love Sushi Ring! This is the best, and freshest sushi, as well as the most value for your buck in Colorado Springs. Elvis and crew are the friendliest and most generous folks group of people. Go there once and you will be remembered and greeted by name the next time you come back. Also keep in mind that they will continue to offer you more and more, because they want to make sure you have eaten your fill. They really treat each one of their customers very special. The best time to go is evenings, where for a small price, you can have all you can eat made to order sushi. I recommend the upside down shrimp and the octopus cucumber salad. Tres Parfait!
I just went to Motif for the first time this weekend and LOVED it!! There was a male singer who was amazing. Loved that I felt like I was in a big city, but only had to drive 20 minutes to get there. My friends and I shared a bunch of stuff off the menu. The sliders and fries were to die for and the chef's special was great as well. A little hard to find, but it was well worth the search, it was a real treat. The service was great, and the drinks as well. The mango martini was out of this world. Can't wait to go back!
Really enjoyed the curry goat and spicy jerk chicken. Live on north side of town but will make special trips for this.
The lunch is stellar there, the air is cleaner there, the view is incomparable there, and yes, the staff is second to none there. But the breakfast? The breakfast ranks as the best on the mountain. The breakfast burritos, huevos rancheros, or breakfast sandwiches are expertly handcrafted by a staff with a culinary obsession. An obsession that drives the owners and staff to adhere to a strict regimen of quality without losing that small-town feeling that greets you with a genuine smile when you walk through the door. And the quality doesn't stop at 11am with breakfast. Lunch will tantalize your taste buds with sandwiches that are "built" and "crafted" with Boar's Head meats and cheeses and other fresh ingredients and breads, soups and salads that would make a French chef envious. Then there's the fresh baked cakes, pies and pastries - Oh well, there goes your resolve. Joanie's Mountain Gourmet Deli is far above anything in area - in more ways than one! Its the best experience you'll have at more than a mile and a half above sea level!
Wow. Fantastic, friendly service. Great quality meats. My fave sub shop! A lot of sandwich for the price. The type of subs you get in New England are so hard to find anywhere else. I am so happy to have found this place! Highly recommend!
I Love it, Real Mexican food, fresh, and tasty, good service, good prices. I Love it.
My wife and I have tried many Chinese Restaurants in the Springs and this is by far the best. This a family run restaurant and the owners quickly make you feel part of the family. I have worked my way through almost every dish on the menu and have never been disappointed.
Fantastic food and the friendliest cook/owner around.
We were only in Colorado Springs for a week but ended up going to this restaurant twice. The food is authentic Vietnamese, with fresh, flavorful ingredients, prepared to order. Service is friendly and helpful. Portions and prices are just right. Will definitely be back next time we are in town.
AWESOME!! Best dogs in Colorado...always fresh & worth the wait! :)
This is a great little mother/daughter coffee shop. Besides great coffee drinks, they have a wonderful little menu of homebaked goods, soups and sandwiches. This place is especially appreciated after a canyon hike or bike ride.
Love this place! They have the best guacamole and carne esada! Truly the authentic...not like your chain restaurants at all!!!
My favorite place!
We lived in Japan for three years and consider ourselves to be foodies, visiting restaurants at least 3x a week while there. We learned the language, took time to study the cuisine, and visited some of the finest establishments in Japan. By no means experts, we are widely experienced enough to recognize a "good" sushi restaurant. Given the limited choices in Colorado Springs, Kura happens to be one of the best -- along with Fujiyama downtown and Tomo on Academy. Kura is the only sushi joint in town that has a Japanese-born (and speaking) waitress and they sport the second-best sake menu in town (Tomo's is the best). The Mu sake with sashimi is well recommended, but their California rolls are awful because they use a salad mixture instead of separate avocado / crab / cucumber. HOWEVER, California Rolls in nearly all Colorado Springs sushi restaurants are are terrible for the same reason. The service is always quick at Kura, the menu includes lots of non-sushi items for colleagues who don't want sushi (the gyoza is good), and the price vs. quality ratio is right on. Now that we have kids we go out only 1x a week but it's Kura sushi 2 out of every three times we go out. Try the Mu sake and ask for it served in an ice bucket.
Dined at Dat's Italian this weekend - great all around experience. The atmosphere was quaint and cozy, the Italian food was excellent. I have to give an extra mention of the marinara sauce and the generous-sized meatballs - very tasty! The owners (Joanne & Dennis?) were extremely gracious and very good to my young children. I would highly recommend Dat's Italian to anyone looking for a warm & friendly family meal experience. What a great little gem in Old Colorado City!
My son, granddaughter and I found "Dat's Italian" while roaming around and checking out this lovely town. Well, "Dat's Italian" was a treasure, not a find. The food was wonderful; every mouthful an experience; and you could tell it was prepared with love. We met Dennis, who was extremely pleasant; and the waiter was a delight. They have an atmosphere that just made us feel right at home, surrounded by friends. What a wonderful ending for a delightful day ! Thank you all!
